A Lancashire Evening Telegraph photographer was on hand to record the final night of racing at Blackburn Greyhound Stadium before it closed for good in June, 1984.

Lancashire Telegraph: Blackburn greyhound stadium, June 1984

The stadium, off Gorse Street had been operating since 1933 and for much of that time it had been a grass track before finally converting to the sand track you can see here.

The stands were demolished and the site was redeveloped to make way for Blackburn’s main Tesco supermarket.
